Welcome to the Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund

ECCF was created in honor of a resilient baby who fought until the end. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial support to families relocating to cities where they can access the best care for their babies diagnosed with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia).

We are the only CDH charity that provides $500 in grants per family, per month, for at least 4 months upon acceptance.


Eden Jeanette Calhoun made her precious appearance on September 6, 2022 with a rare birth defect called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). Her parents, Dylan and Lexie, had to relocate to Houston, Texas in order for Eden to have the best chance to survive since there were no hospitals near them that were equipped with the proper surgeons and items needed to help her. Sweet Eden lived 27 loving days and passed away in the arms of her mommy and daddy on October 3rd, 2022. Her resiliency to fight through 13 surgeries amazed doctors and prayer warriors around the world, and we hope to honor her life by keeping her courageous legacy alive. 

Dylan and Lexie found how financially difficult it was to relocate cities in order for Eden to have the best care possible, and they believe families shouldn't have to choose between saving their child's life and financial stability. From having to pay for 2 homes (their residential home and their monthly Airbnb apartment in Houston), expensive hospital parking garage tickets, and meals in the hospital, money was draining quickly. Because of this, the Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund wants to make an incredibly stressful situation a little less stressful. Our goal is to provide financial assistance for families having to relocate cities in order to provide the best care for their CDH-diagnosed baby. Will you help us in assisting these families?
